Reflection: Relevance The Wagon and The Ball - Section 5: Explore Part 3


Beginning with this lesson and carry throughout the remainder of the lesson in this unit, students have the opportunity to use video capture the emotion of the objects that will be studying. The technology needed to do this may or may not be available to you at your school. If your students have access to smart devices(iPad, iPhone, android phones, etc.) they with cameras that have a slow motion feature. The IPhone 5S and iPhone 6 for instance both have slow-mo video camera features in the camera application.

I used this technology for the first time this year which freed up students to be able to capture and analyze motion videos much quicker then we had in past years where we had to use a video camera to first video the motion then upload them to the computer, open them using QuickTime then slow down the video using QuickTime to get our analysis.
